What is the real error message?  I don't see the string you quote
anywhere in Octave's config files.

As far as I can tell, the HOSTTYPE environment variable does not
matter at all.

I build Octave on an i686 system all the time, so I don't think that
should be a problem.

What is the complete output of uname -a on your system?

BTW, please report bugs to address@hidden
